Oxford University Press, 1994 - Working class - 187 pages
Professor Sen maintains that communal riots have become a feature in Indian politics despite the advance of the democratic movement. In this context he emphasizes the contribution of the trade unions which have countered communal parties, both Hindu and Muslim. He also underlines the crucial importance of the worker-peasant alliance in the acceleration of social change. The main strength of this book lies in its clear presentation of labour conditions and labour movements over a long period of time.
